Zac Stacy (ankle) was "very limited" in Wednesday's practice.

Stacy wasn't even expected to practice at all, so the fact that he even gutted out a limited session is encouraging. Still, on a short week, the rookie's Week 9 status for a home game against a weak Titans run defense is up in the air. We'll learn more as the week rolls on. Daryl Richardson would get the start for the Rams if Stacy can't go. Stacy is dealing with some sort of sprain.

Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports does not expect the Cardinals to join the bidding for free agent Kirk Cousins.

Long one of the NFL's most reliable beat reporters, Jurecki expects the Cardinals to pass on Cousins and instead opt for two cheaper veteran quarterbacks to compete with a rookie, also noting Arizona "needs to get its O-Line figured out." If the Cards are truly out on Cousins, the Jets, Broncos, Vikings, and Browns would be left as his likeliest destinations. The Jaguars dropped out when they signed Blake Bortles to a new three-year, $54 million deal.

New Orleans Times-Picayune's Larry Holder reports Saints DB Kenny Vaccaro is "likely on his way out" of New Orleans.

Vaccaro had his 2017 season ended early after being placed on injured reserve due to problems with his groin and wrist. The former first-round pick is now an unrestricted free agent and will likely sign a fairly big contract in free agency. The Cowboys were a team rumored to be interested in acquiring Vaccaro in the past.

Odell Beckham (ankle) doesn't expect to play in any preseason games.

This looks to be injury related, but Beckham is a holdout threat in the final year of his contract. The Giants will likely want to get Beckham preseason reps in their new offense if he's healthy, so this can change between now and training camp. Beckham will make $8.4 million if he plays 2018 under his fifth-year option.

The Texans could release Lamar Miller.

Miller had a career worst 3.7 YPC last season after fading down the stretch in 2016. Owed $14 million over the next two years, he’s not a lock to be back. D’Onta Foreman was pushing Miller for touches before landing on IR and gives the Texans an in-house replacement if they move on. Even if Miller returns, it’s possible he’ll be shifted into more of a pass game role. The Texans can save $5.75 million from making Miller a post June cut.

Blake Bortles (wrist) expects to be fully healthy for OTAs.

Bortles had wrist surgery last month, but he’s already resumed throwing. He should have close to a normal offseason and be ready for OTAs in April. The Jaguars created $9 million in cap space from giving Bortles a three-year extension. He’ll continue to be on the spot in 2018.

NBC Washington’s Rich Tandler expects Samaje Perine to open 2018 as the Redskins’ starter.

Perine failed to impress as a rookie, averaging 3.4 YPC with just two touchdowns in eight starts. An injured offensive line was part of the problem, and the Redskins history of not investing at running back makes Perine the favorite for early-down work. Perine’s limited pass game role and the presence of Rob Kelley are concerns to his outlook, but there’s some scoring potential if he returns as Washington’s red-zone back.

Jaguars signed QB Blake Bortles to a new three-year, $54 million contract that includes $26.5 million guaranteed.

This comes after reports the Jaguars were exploring options to replace Bortles. The extension locks Bortles up through 2020, but Jacksonville will likely be able to escape the contract with relative ease as soon as 2019. Bortles' new deal is on the team-friendly side, placing him behind Ryan Tannehill in annual average. The Jaguars have a rising receiver tandem in Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole, and are expected to franchise impending free agent Allen Robinson, so Bortles should have an improved supporting cast going into 2018. The extension takes the Jags out of the hunt for Kirk Cousins, although they may still consider early-round quarterbacks in the draft.

ESPN's Michael Rothstein "doesn't see" the Lions letting DE Ezekiel Ansah leave as an impending free agent.

Ansah ended the season on a high note with three sacks of Brett Hundley in the Week 17 finale, finishing the year tied for eighth in the league with 12 sacks. Nine of those dozen sacks came across three games, with Ansah disappearing for long stretches. The Lions, however, have nothing in terms of pass rushers behind Ansah, and the free-agent market is completely barren at the position. It makes sense for Detroit to franchise-tag Ansah for roughly $17 million.

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Bills "were trying to get involved last year" in a trade for Martavis Bryant.

We assume this happened around the trade deadline when Bryant voiced his desire to leave Pittsburgh when he lost his starting job to JuJu Smith-Schuster. Fowler believes teams came to the Steelers offering a fourth-rounder, but it wasn't enough in Pittsburgh's eyes. Fowler, however, does think a second- or high third-rounder could get the deal done this offseason. Bryant's contract expires after 2018, and he isn't expected to accept a long-term deal with the Steelers due to his desire to be a No. 1 receiver. That obviously isn't happening with the Steelers.

ProFootballTalk reports the Jaguars are "exploring their quarterback options" in free agency.

The Jaguars have Blake Bortles under control through 2019, but his fifth-year option is only guaranteed for injury. Assuming he can pass a physical coming off wrist surgery, Jacksonville can shed his entire $19 million salary to make a run at a quarterback. The Jaguars have been linked to Kirk Cousins and may view the other top free agents as upgrades on Bortles. Things should heat up on Jacksonville's quarterback situation after next week's Combine.

Former Jets and Patriots LB David Harris announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons.

Harris spent his first 10 seasons with the Jets before finishing his career with the Patriots in 2017. A second-round pick out of Michigan in 2007, Harris was one of the league's better linebackers during his heyday, earning an All-Pro selection in 2009. Harris played sparingly in his final year, logging just 181 snaps over 10 games for New England. He recorded 1,110 tackles, 37 sacks, six interceptions and four fumble recoveries over 164 NFL appearances. He's likely ticketed for the Jets' Ring of Honor.
